Establish the height of the top of the wall guard above the finished floor. Deduct 5-9/16” and snap a chalk line at that height. This marks the lowest point of the wall guard mounting bracket.
Determine and mark the locations of the mounting brackets, for required deductions see layout guide on page Align the bottom edge of the mounting bracket with the chalk line (step 1). Using the bracket as a template, mark the locations of the top and bottom fasteners. Drill the appropriate size holes in the wall surface for the mounting hardware. See manufacturer's required drill hole sizes as listed on the fasteners (anchors). NOTE: Observe all safety precautions when drilling to avoid all utilities and re-bar.
Attach the mounting brackets to the wall surface using the required fasteners. Use a level when installing the brackets to ensure that the brackets are level.
Remove the plastic protective coating from the face of the wall guard.
Place the wall guard into position by clipping the top of the wall guard onto the mounting brackets, allowing the bottom of the rail to rest on the bottom tab of the mounting brackets.
Attach the rail to the mounting brackets by drilling a 9/64” hole in the bottom of the rail. Then using a stainless steel 1-1/8”x5/8” pop rivet attach the rail to the mounting bracket.
